Let UsTeach


Freedom, freedom they shouted

Freedom, freedom they cried

Freedom, freedom some ignored and flouted,

Freedom, freedom; then that voice died;

But, freedom it had survived.


Equality, equality was preached

Equality, equality was demanded

Equality, equality was then breached,

Equality, equality was then stranded;

But, equality was finally reached.



Peace, peace for it they paraded

Peach, peace for it they prayed

Peace, peace then the voices all faded,

Peace, peace many forgot and forbade;

But, peace..... It stayed.


Freedom, equality and peace
They must and will go together hand in hand,
No one! Has the right to cause them to cease
No one! By a request or by any demand.
In this time of life and living, we all deserve an equal piece,
I say freedom for all! Equality forever! And, peace let us teach!

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
